Opening Times

Drop-off and Pick-Up Times


Both sites will be open for drop-off in the morning from 08:35 – 09:00


Both sites will be open for pick-up at the end of the day from 15:05 – 15:20 (gates will open from 15.00). Our total time open is 32.5 hours in a week. 

Parents collect children from designated areas (e.g. classroom exit doors or main staircase/corridor exits directly into outside space).


  • A child whose parents are not there at the end of the day will be taken to the school office and wait to be collected.
  • If your child is going to be collected by somebody other than yourselves please let the class teacher/office know as soon as possible.


Parents of children in Special Provision classes, who send their children by taxi / mini bus will have their times for pick-up and drop-off confirmed by the transport provider. Those parents who walk or transport their children using their own cars will keep to their current timings.




Please report your child's absence each day by 09:30 by ringing the school office (01304 821526), alternatively you can let us know via the School Comms App.
